It has been a while since I uploaded any art to deviantART. I have posted mostly daily on my blog - artwyrd.com - but not here. So, today I thought I'd add some artwork here too.

As the book is now listed on Amazon, I guess the cat is out of the bag. I have done the illustrations for a book called Colour Me Calm which can be found here http://www.amazon.co.uk/Color-Calm-Templates-Meditation-Relaxation/dp/1937994775/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1398203919&sr=8-1&keywords=color+me+calm.  I'm still working on the last few coloured illustrations for it, before I turn my hand to the next book, which will be called Colour Me Happy. This is the reason not much art has been uploaded and I've been very quiet here (sorry to those still awaiting a reply and I hope you'll forgive me). It's all exciting for me and has bee

It's been a manic couple of months.  The return to work (teaching) after the summer holidays has seriously curtailed time for artistic things.  It's now half term, so a week away from the madness, and I can put pencil, pen, and paints to paper, particularly with a project or two that need to be started and time found to crack on with them now that the contracts have arrived and the first lists of work needed too. For those who've left a question, comment or a note for me in my teaching-imposed absence, please accept my apologies for my tardiness in replying ... I will get around to them very soon, honest! As for all of you lovely, wonderful

I could spend hours in your gallery. Every last piece should be a daily deviation. NICELY done!

Gosh, thank you so much for your kind words

I AM SO ENVIOUS OF YOUR PATTERNS!

You have an amazing gallery of work with so many beautiful pieces of work created. Your jewellery is wonderful and your art work outstanding. You are an extremely talented artist and i hope to see more in the future.:clap: :love:

Take care and stay safe and well. I know you won't but if you ever feel like talking, I'd love you to drop me a note - I love to talk.:)

Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm so glad you've enjoyed looking at my gallery and dropping me a comment.

Such beautiful mandala's. How do you create them may I ask? I get very crude results with the kaleidoscope effect in paintshop pro.

Thank you for your kind words.

These days I used Autodesk Sketchbook Pro to create all my digital artwork in. It may look basic, but it's rather powerful. It has a specific symmetry tool. I pay for the Pro version as it does have a few tweaks that the free version doesn't have, but they are almost exactly the same.
